Are we talking about the same thing ?
j-t-c/coyote/src/java/org/apache/coyote/ does have 

The request attributes are set by the connector - SSL stuff. For 
lazy evaluation we also need a getAttribute callback. 

I don't think coyote or connectors will replace attributes - at least
the attributes in 2.3 are only set once ( and in theory before the 
request is served ).

If you want to be notified when an attribute is added to the request - 
it's not only ServletRequest.setAttribute that does that.

Again, if the spec requires notifications _only_ for attribute
changes initiated by a servlet - then it's fine to implement this
only in ServletRequest.setAttribute().
